TOYE Family HistoryThis very unusual and interesting name is of Olde English origins, and one of the very first of all surnames to be recorded anywhere in the world. The first example shown below may not have been hereditary, although this is not proven. Eitherway it is an excellent example of the irrepressible early medieval habit of creating a 'sire-name' from a baptismal name or a nickname. The precise medieval meaning of 'toi' is obscure. It may have been a form of endearment, certainly it was found as a baptismal name as in the recording of Godfridus fillius Toye of Lincoln in the year 200.
